Traditional Classes and Online/Distance Learning Choices

The Sport and Exercise Studies program is proud to offer traditional and online/distance learning options for our students. The traditional classroom experience continues to provide students with high quality instruction in a small classroom setting on our campuses and at our regional learning center locations. The Sports and Exercise Studies program also offers distance learning (DL) courses that provide the same high quality learning as traditional instruction, yet with the flexibility of being able to complete course work online.

The online/distance learning option for the Sport Management Major requires a student to apply for admittance to the program. Some courses may require face-to-face learning or transfer credits from previous learning. Applicants should contact the Sport and Exercise Studies program coordinator for details on admission.

Students graduating from Columbus State’s Sport and Exercise Studies program can transfer into the following programs to complete bachelor’s degrees via online/distance learning:

  • Wellness and Fitness major at the California University of Pennsylvania
  • Sport Management or Sport Coaching at the United States Sports Academy.
  • Students can inquire about traditional learning program transfers into baccalaureate degree programs as well.
